    I want to change style of comboboxitem when it's selected.

    Inside ComboboxItem template, there is not a state selected, so I thought to change SelectionBoxItemTemplate.

    But it happens that I only  watch what I want when combo is displayed first time, but when I select an item, there's no change and it looks like default,  with white background.

    I would like to see something like next: ComboItemSelectedBackground

    How can I do that?

    Hello Celeste,

    RadComboBoxItem does not have a Selected state, unlike the standard ComboBoxItem in Silverlight. When the drop-down is opened, the selected item is highlighted, but when the mouse moves over the other items, the highlight moves, thus making the selected item indistinguishable.

    I guess that it is a good idea to add Selected state to RadComboBox item and I will add this feature to the product backlog and we will implement it in the near future, most probably for Q3 2009 SP1 which will be released in a month or so.

    If you just want to change the highlight colors, I suggest editing the Highlighted state. The SelectionBoxItemTemplate is the template, that is applied on the selected item, when it is displayed in the RadComboBox itself (not in the dropdown), when IsEditable=false.

    Any updates on this issue? Has Telerik fixed this or is this still on their backlog?

    Hi Karan,
    As Valeri mentioned earlier in this thread, this behavior of RadComboBox is by design. We have discussed adding a Selected state but we couldn't find a proper user case scenario which will be valuable for our clients. Could you share with us what is your user scenario and give us more information about how this feature will be in help?
